Owen Hargreaves could be handed a chance to resurrect his career by Sven Goran Eriksson.
Hargreaves was released by Manchester United a week ago after suffering four years of injury hell at Old Trafford which saw him make just 28 starts for the club, and play only nine minutes in the last two seasons.
The former Bayern Munich player has recently uploaded 18 video clips to You Tube to try and prove he is fit ahead of the new season. And that seems to be enough for Leicester City boss Eriksson to give Hargreaves the opportunity to win a contract at the Championship club.
It was Eriksson who persuaded Canada-born Hargreaves to choose England for his international career, with the player also eligible to play for his homeland, Germany and Wales. Hargreaves, who has 42 England caps, could join Eriksson's bid to lead the Foxes back into the Championship.
''I saw his videos," Eriksson was quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror. "And if he wants to come here I will open the door and stand and wait for him in the door.
''He's been very unlucky in recent years, but if he's close to what he was, he is a fantastic football player. I haven't spoken to him for a while - maybe I should.
"It's difficult to know what he wants to do when he's been away for a long time.''
